Starting a website these days is very easy, and anyone with limited tech skills can install WordPress, and start a website within minute. The hard part is making your website trustable and authority. To be honest, it’s not as hard as it’s sound, but you need to know what elements your blog should have, to achieve the same. Harsh has covered a detailed article on how to build a trustable blog, and here I will be covering an important aspect for the same.
What do you see in this picture? I hope you don’t see that my blog has little traffic lol . I take this picture because I want to show you the page views of “About Page”. According to my blog, About Page is one of top ten popular pages in my blog. In this post, we will discuss the importance of the About Page.
Why You Need An About Page?
1. Build Trust With Your Readers
Building trust is all about building relationship and the relationship on the blog starts at the About page – JohnChow
I have seen a lot of bloggers who don’t bother updating about me page and their about page look like this:
Can you trust this blog? I think the answer is : NO. Blogosphere has millions of blog, and thousand blogs are created daily, you can’t trust a blog where the about page is still in the default stage.
2. Allowing yourself to be known
The About page is usually the first click when I visit a new site where I’ve never visited before. And I’m not the only one, apparently. Most visitors want to know: who you are? where are you come from? what is your expertise? ….. etc.
3. Help you get more fans and friends
In your about page, you can provide all important contact informations like email, Facebook link, twitter link, So that readers can contact you easily and maybe some of them can become your close friend. More over people who tries to connect with you after reading your fan page are usually your true fans or who follows your blog closely.
You should also consider reading one of the old post on Importance of an about me page for your blog.
Do let us know if you have an updated about me page or your are still planning to work on your about me page some day?
